Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Before match

Jaina Proudmoore (present)
The darkness I sensed within Arthas was the work of demons. They twisted his soul, transforming him into the Lich King...
And he did their bidding—terrorizing his former kingdom. Antonidas charged me with evacuating civilians across the sea.
But even there, the demons' influence was lurking, strong as ever.

Introduction

Grommash Hellscream
Leave these lands, pinkskin!
Jaina Proudmoore
Never! How did you orcs even get here?
Grommash Hellscream
We are always one step ahead.

Emote Response

Grommash Hellscream
BAH!

Hero Power

Grommash Hellscream
<battle cry>
Taste my blade!
Where is Gorehowl?!

Idle

Grommash Hellscream
I left behind my home… my ailing son… all for the glory of battle!
None can rival the power the demons have given us!
The blood haze clouds everything...

Turn 2

Jaina Proudmoore
You escaped the internment camps?
Grommash Hellscream
There is no cage that can yet hold me.

Turn 3

Jaina Proudmoore
Dark magic lingers around you... you've been corrupted.
Grommash Hellscream
Silence, human!

Turn 7

Warchief Thrall
I am Thrall, leader of the orc Horde. This warrior answers to me, but his mind has been overwhelmed by rage.
Jaina Proudmoore
Then we need to subdue him... Let's work together. (Voltaic Burst is cast)

Turn 9

Warchief Thrall
I will aid you. (Voltaic Burst is cast)

Turn 10

Warchief Thrall
Here is more help. (Feral Spirit is cast)

Turn 12

Warchief Thrall
Let me assist. (Feral Spirit is cast)

Death

Grommash Hellscream
I see clearly now. I'm... sorry. I am so sorry.
Warchief Thrall
All is well, thanks to Lady Proudmoore.
Jaina Proudmoore
Perhaps if we join forces, we can undo more of the demons' plans.

Defeat

Grommash Hellscream
What has come over me? I did not mean to do that...

Lore[edit | edit source]

From Wowpedia:

Grommash "Grom" Hellscream was the chieftain of the Warsong clan, and best friend and chief advisor to Warchief Thrall. He was the first orc who drank the blood of Mannoroth the Destructor, thus binding the Horde to the Burning Legion — and he would eventually pay the ultimate price to free himself and his people from the curse.
"Grommash" means "The Giant's Heart" in orcish. Grom, a powerful blademaster, was the best friend and adviser of Thrall, so much so that Thrall considered him a brother. They would eventually fight against the demonic entity that bound the orcish race to slavery: Mannoroth. The two orcs won, but at a terrible price; Grom's life. He lies buried in Ashenvale, in the area now known as Demon Fall Canyon, which is near the site where he and Thrall destroyed Mannoroth. In memory of him is Grommash Hold, in Orgrimmar, as well as the Grom'Gol Base Camp in Stranglethorn Vale. Just outside Grommash Hold is Mannoroth's armor, complete with axe-hole, with a plaque dedicated to Grom. His axe, Gorehowl, was long held by his son and heir, Garrosh.
